Panora native Kip Janvrin stands third in the Drake Relays decathlon after the first day of action. Janvrin is seeking an 11th Relays title in the event. Janvrin says his second day is usually when he scores best. He says he can outdo his competitors in the javelin and 1,500 meter run.Iowa State’s Barbara Szlendakova has a slim lead in the heptathalon following the opening day. She says she’s not happy with how she did in the high jump and shot put results. Szlendakova is hoping for a good second day to win the event, although she says her javelin throw is not strong and her 800 is “so weird.” She leads Wichita State’s Mellanee Welty by 26-points. Welty is going after a third straight title. She says there is much more competition this year.
